A $200,000 gift to the School of Law from Long V. Nguyen will create the Dr. Lawrence Cranberg Scholarship Endowment in Science and the Law and the Dr. Lawrence Cranberg Faculty Research Endowment in Science and the Law. Nguyen is member of the university’s Board of Visitors and president and CEO of Pragmatics Inc., which is based in McLean.
“We are very grateful to Dr. Nguyen for making this gift to honor Dr. Cranberg, his former physics professor and academic advisor at the University of Virginia,” says School of Law Dean Mark Grady. “Although we are the fastest rising law school in the country, we are still a young law school and possess a young law school’s endowment. These gifts will grow with us and will become a substantial part of our academic program.”
The gift from Nguyen will endow a fund for scholarships for law students who hold a Ph.D. in a science and fellowships for law faculty members whose research intersects the fields of law and science.
